We’re back at it again for a warm-up Yanks Abroad as leagues all around the globe are starting up. The Premier League kicked off this past weekend with injuries across the board for the Americans. But as we look around the rest of Europe there was plenty of action to keep an eye on.

DeAndre Yedlin
Before suffering an injury in the 90th minute, Yedlin put in a full shift against a tough opponent. He was dealing with Tottenham & Dele Alli all afternoon, so he had his hands full. In the 18th minute Alli got the better of him but I actually won’t be too hard on Yedlin for this one. The moment he chose to check his surroundings and search for his man was the moment a perfect, one-touch pass was sent in. Alli had snuck in behind him and easily headed it home. DeAndred nearly scored when a corner kick fell to him, but the keeper did came up with a very strong save. Word on the injury is that he left the stadium on crutches. But it looked like it could have been a pretty serious knee injury.

Tim Weah
The 18-year-old American subbed in for Neymar (that was fun to say) in the 82nd minute of Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 win over Caen to open the Ligue 1 season. Just seven minutes after entering the match he scored the third and final goal. Great work from Weah, but COME ON KEEP!

Emmanuel Sabbi
The 20 year old is playing for Hobro in Denmark and has been playing very well. He scored two goals over the weekend in a 3-2 win over Odense.

Romain Gall
The 23-year-old made his second start with Malmo in the Danish Superliga. He assisted the match winner as they defeated Dalkurd 1-0. He was subbed out in the 61st minute.

Weston McKennie
The Bundesliga doesn’t start for a couple weeks, but McKennie scored in a friendly vs Fiorentina on Saturday.

Lynden Gooch
All the way down in League One, Sunderland & Gooch should dominate this year. He scored last week and turned in a nice assist over the weekend. (VIDEO)

Antonee Robinson
On his loan from Everton, Robinson has gone the distance for Wigan Athletic in their first two matches in the English Championship. He turned in some pretty dreadful numbers over the weekend has Wigan fell to Aston Villa 3-2. He completed just 18/30 passes and was beaten too many times in defense.

Eric Lichaj
The Hull City has started the first two games of the season at right-back and gone the distance in both matches. Hull drew 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Andrija Novakovich
He started at CF for Fortuna Sittard in the Netherlands as they drew 1-1 with Excelsior. Novakovich finished with just two shots, one on goal and just 65% passing.

Tim Ream
Fulham began their Premier League campaign on Saturday, but without Ream. He is sidelined with an injury at the moment and was not available for the season opener. Fulham lossed to Crystal Palace by a final of 2-0. It doesn’t sound too serious, so their reigning Player of the Season should be back before too long.

Danny Williams
Just a reminder he is still out after fracturing a bone in his ankle. Huddersfield Town were destroyed by Chelsea 3-0 to open the season.
